In the (temporary I hope) absence of the gurus, I would venture a guess.
This sounds like a relatively low-level call, and thus unlikely to be in 
the Java code of Tomcat per se.
If you are using the "native" connector code (tcnative.dll ?), try 
removing (renaming) it and restarting Tomcat.
Otherwise, maybe it is the Java JVM itself which needs updating ?
